People say to me, "You're so lucky. You had faith." But Stalin had faith. Hitler had faith. Would it be wonderful to believe in the virgin birth? I don't think so. Or that trees speak to you? Wouldn't that just mean you were mad? Faith's not valuable, not in itself. It's what you have faith in that matters.

I just want to state that I could not take my eyes off the screen until the very end of this fine drama. I had a vague recollection of having seen it before but fortunately no clear memory of how it ended. The ending actually is somewhat anti-climactic given the intensity of the previous scenes.
Dialogue is quick: more often seen in a theatrical production than in a feature film. But this is not surprising given the source material.
A true gem that took me out of time for just over an hour.
Gee, I am short of the minimum ten lines ... So what else can be said?
Well, Uma Thurman's accent was a bit odd but not enough to spoil the drama.
